Whoopee good news (for me)

Hi Everyone, the first of two posts today. 
I have been asked to be a GDT, I was thrilled and said yes,
this is my card for the 39th challenge of 

The Sponsor for the challenge this month is Lily of the Valley and don't we all love their images? 
I chose to follow this sketch for the card. 
I have coloured this adorable image in Distress inks and markers, I added some flower and leaf dies, cut them to size and layered them onto card, a simple card in fact.
image - LOTV Spring Pup 
inks - Distress inks
markers - Spectrum Noir
papers - Jessica Dunn
card - The Works
flower die - Tattered Lace
leaf die - Card Making Magic
square pin die - Sue Wilson Noble die
sentiment stamp - Altenew, magazine freebie

AND I Have to add the latest poem from Gill Reed (my SiL's Sister)

Should I go out, should I stay in?
I’ll think it over with a nice little gin.
The doorstep delivery has been very handy
Some things are missing but they always have brandy.
Should I take part in the new world of sport?
Or stay on the patio with lemon in port?
If I meet with a friend, will I be fine?
Or should I make friends with a bottle of wine?
Should I travel some distance on an instinctive hunch?
Or throw a big party with cocktails and punch?
Should I go to the beach where people are rife?
Or stay home and ponder the Cummings and goings of life?
